BACKGROUND

1. Field

The described technology generally relates to a display device including a display panel and a housing and a frame which house the display panel.

2. Description of the Related Technology

Display devices are applied to televisions, monitors, notebooks, mobile phones, smart phones, tablet PCs, and the like to display images. Examples of display panel technologies include liquid crystal displays (LCDs), organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and plasma display panels (PDPs). LCDs, OLEDs and PDPs are distinguished by the way they emit light.

A display device includes a display panel which displays an image and a housing which houses the display panel. The housing is accommodated in a frame. The frame is made of, e.g., metal to protect the display panel against external impact. Some display devices include a touch panel or a switching panel on the display panel to be used as three-dimensional (3D) displays. An external panel such as a touch panel or a switching panel may be housed in the housing and/or the frame, together with the display panel.

When an external impact is applied to the frame accomodating the display panel, the panel may be damaged.

SUMMARY

One inventive aspect is a display device structured to prevent a display panel from being damaged by external impact.

Another aspect is a display device comprising: a display panel, a housing which houses the display panel and a frame which is disposed under the housing and comprises a first bottom portion, wherein the first bottom portion comprises a first bottom surface which is an upper surface thereof and a first base surface which is a lower surface thereof, and the frame comprises a groove recessed from the first bottom surface.

Another aspect is a display device comprising: a display panel, a housing which houses the display panel and a frame which is disposed under the housing and comprises a bottom portion having one or more through holes.
